So I decided to look up a recipe for using Essential Oils, a more natural cleaner to retain the natural beauty of my stones. Here goes my experiment.
Recipe for Oily Jewelry Cleaner
2 tsp Thieves Cleaner
2 tsp Witch Hazel
1 tsp Baking Soda
3 drops Lemon oil
3 drops Tea Tree oil
Mix in a glass jar, soak jewelry in for a minute or so, then remove, gently brush with toothbrush. Do not scrub or use on pearls, opals, or turquoise. Rinse clear with water and pat dry.
If you want to see my Video of using it and creating it, here you go:
Sorry I turned it sideways a quarter of the way through, I'm not a professional videographer.
Photos are more my thing. ;)
